University of Michigan law schoolFounded in 1859, University of Michigan Law School is one of the oldest law schools in the nation. In 1870, Michigan became the first major law school to admit a woman and the second to confer a law degree on an African American. In 1871, its graduate Sarah Killgore became the first woman with a law degree in the nation to be admitted to the bar. Great pride is taken in the school’s non privileged inception.

Today, Michigan Law is renowned for its top-ranked graduate schools in business, medicine, engineering, music, social work, public policy and, of course, law.
